CHESTER COUNTY, S.C. (WBTV) - Chester County school officials are holding a special meeting on Monday afternoon after two on-campus fights involved non-students last week.

The school board called the meeting Friday, after unauthorized people entered school grounds twice last Wednesday.

The first incident, which happened at Great Falls High School, led to a campus lockdown after a group of men got on school grounds during a fight. Deputies said the fight started between two students, but soon after, the men jumped a fence and ran onto campus.

The lockdown lasted for nearly two hours.

On the same afternoon, a mother joined her daughter in a fight inside Chester High School.

Deputies said the girl was fighting another student in the bathroom when her mom entered the school and joined in.

According to Chester County Schools’ Facebook page, there will be no public comments allowed at Monday’s meeting.

The special meeting is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m.
